Next Doctor Who: Phoebe Waller-Bridge Could Become Favourite In A Matter Of Days

William Hill think that the race to become the next Doctor Who is a two horse race with Kris Marshall (at 7/4) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (at 9/4) miles ahead of third favourite Michaela Coel.

“Over the past week or so, Kris Marshall has drifted from 1/6 to 7/4, while Phoebe Waller-Bridge has come in from 11/2 to 9/4, so while the former remains favourite, the momentum is certainly with the Fleabag star and it would not be a surprise to see her become favourite in the next couple of days,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

To replace Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who: 7/4 Kris Marshall; 9/4 Phoebe Waller-Bridge; 8/1 Michaela Coel; 9/1 Tilda Swinton; 10/1 David Harewood; 12/1 Tom Rosenthal; 14/1 James Norton; 16/1 Luke Treadaway; 20/1 BAR
